Research interests

Rebecca's research focuses on making work a reliable route out of poverty.

She is interested in how and why living standards vary across the UK, and the policies which can improve the places with the fewest opportunities.


Rebecca previously worked for Centre for Cities, an urban policy think-tank. She published research on the links between towns and cities, economic causes of high street decline, and reasons for recent city centre growth.

Before that she was an economic consultant at PwC.
